With Metropolis at Metrotown being the largest mall in B.C., there is no shortage of holiday shoppers this time of year. In fact, just getting a parking space is an outing all of its own.

Whether you love Christmas shopping or hate it, you likely experience these many frustrations while battling the thousands of other shoppers in between you and that perfect gift.

I mean, would it be so hard to walk a little faster?
